Had an enjoyable weekend away at this beautiful hotel. On arrival we were met by Diane, who throughout our stay, couldn't be any more helpful to us. We had with us, our 2 year old granddaughter who was welcomed as much as we were. The room we had was tastefully decorated, and very, very clean. There was nothing we could... More

This place is wonderful! Decided to stay here as we wanted the next day in Wasdale, could not have chosen better. As soon as we arrived we were totally relaxed and felt completely at home and welcome. The owner showed us to our room, couldn't wait to go to bed that night, as soon as you saw the bed you... More

I was met by the owner who showed me to the room and explained everything I needed to know. The room was clean and comfortable with wifi and a desk. The bed was very comfortable. Dinner was very nice and at a reasonable price and the breakfast was also good and they catered for my requests. I will use again... More

Loved the stay in our top floor room with stunning view over the countryside. No lift, but not too much trouble to get to room. Very good room with high level of finishing. En-suite was lovely. Had a evening meal & breakfast, both of which complemented the quality of the hotel. Would easily stay again.

A lively old style hotel in a small village. As fell walkers we were about a half hour from our start point. While there are nice places to stay in Eskdale, this is a bargain for what you get. Great staff, plenty of parking and a couple of village pubs very close by.

If you are looking for a lovely peaceful location, away from the more touristy areas of the Lakes, then this is perfect. This is a beautiful Georgian house, previously a Doctor's residence, with lovely gardens and outside area. We stayed in Room 9 - in a newer part of the hotel. The room was lovely, bright and with lovely views... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Westlakes Hotel is a beautiful late Georgian Country House set in three acres of tranquil mature gardens, situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty. We have a choice of ten en-suite bedrooms and each room is individually designed to give a comfortable space to work or relax in, with complimentary wireless internet connection. You can be sure of the warmest welcome and friendly service from Geoff and Debra, and our experienced friendly staff. Our 28 cover restaurant is open Monday to Thursday and Saturday from 6.30pm until 8.30pm. Please book to avoid disappointment. Special Offers available - please call or follow us on Facebook for more information. To the east is the spectacular scenery of the Lake District, while to the west , the Cumbrian coast offers long, uncrowded beaches. Indeed the area offers the best of both worlds; it is attractive but remains unknown by the majority of the Lake District tourists. ... more   less
